"I hope you die soon Wally"
After some very odd classical music that is totally inappropriate for the movie, "Writing Better Social Letters" cranks up the emotional intensity by presenting us with Nora, a girl who is stuck on writing a letter to her Aunt and Uncle for the lovely time they had over at the farm. Brother Wally helps her out by pointing out some actually great tips on writing such a thing. He pulls out different types of letters, from his formal invite to a "George Washington Ball" to letters he got when contracted pneumonia, to the inevetible invite to a "little" April Fool's party (was the invitation a joke?). After plenty of examples, she throws away the torn-out-paper-from-her-notebook letter she was writing and whips up a solid letter to her Aunt and (overalled of course) uncle to enjoy! I liked this film, , this has a certain nostalgia about it, nowadays itÂs all about terse emails.. Highly reccomended!
